If you are lucky enough to be near a Laura Ashley store, or have a Laura Ashley catalogue handy, Bethany, then that can give you a lot of inspiration! The Laura Ashley asisstants in the U.K. often have a very good idea of what goes with what period, and can point you into their late eighteenth century and early nineteenth century designs. (They even have a range with names like "Lizzy" "Charlotte" "Lydia" and "Kitty"!)
If you look up in the "links' at the top of the board, you can find web-pages dealing with regency fashions (Jessamyn's is particularly interesting here)Lisa in LA has put some photos of her dresses in the Archives, as have Kali and Jenny C.
